Pollution Prevention - Carpet Cleaning

If you clean your own carpets, rugs or upholstery, please dispose of your waste down a sink or toilet. If you must dispose of your waste outside, use soil or gravel far from any ditch, gutter, creek or inlet. Be aware that chemicals in the waste may damage plants. Please never dispose of these wastes in rainy weather as they may be washed to creeks.

If you have your carpets, rugs or upholstery cleaned by a carpet cleaning business, please make sure your carpet cleaner both knows and follows appropriate practices. Ask your cleaner how he or she intends to dispose of waste.

Although every effort is made to provide complete and accurate information on this website, users are advised to contact appropriate Permit Sonoma staff before making project decisions. This may involve contacting more than one section within Permit Sonoma(e.g. Building, Plan Check, Zoning, Well & Septic, etc.) since each section implements specific codes or ordinances which may affect your project.
